A person may have been hit from behind by an automobile or simply from someone running toward them and crashing into them. That is the amount of speed it takes to cause whiplash. What exactly is whiplash?
It is an injury to your upper neck caused by the head being forced forward and backward. The vertebrae in the upper neck make a fast motion, much like cracking a whip. This, in turn, can lead to damage to the muscles and tissues of the neck. The bones, discs, and ligaments can also become damaged leading to further issues. The misalignment of the top two vertebrae will cause a person the majority of problems.
Two studies conducted indicate that there is indeed evidence to support success in chiropractic treatment.
It is no wonder, then, that the Journal of Orthopaedic Medicine reported the answer for whiplash patients is to seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. They stated that this is the best way to find relief from whiplash symptoms, including pain.
It is vital to seek out our care as soon as possible after an automobile or another kind of accident. In this way, healing can begin, and life can continue uninterrupted by pain.
